    bomb detonator unscrewing tool

    Hi,
    for an friend of mine, i've made an tool to unscrew the detonator of an bomb shell, wich can be very tight from oxidation due to gun powder .
    the 'strips' are from an elctrical cabinet, were ik can screw modified M5 inbus screws in .
    notice it is made with an axial bearing for better force reduction,
    you can unscrew both 2 and 3 pin detonators,
    the tool and shell are mounted with an
    so before unscrewing i warm the shell on an electrical coocking plate, let it cool, and spray some WD40 and let it impregnate some days
    i have made twoo levers on, wich i can lengten with an tube
    it works fine, and the screw holes are not (or much less ) damagedn but i was surpriced by the neede force to unschrew

    Could be a fun piece to keep in the toolbox just for explaining its use to friends. "Ah, this is just for unscrewing the plates on a certain kind of bomb. My Scoutmaster taught me to be prepared..."

    Somehow, hotplate and (bomb) shell should not be in the same sentence, or even in the same paragraph!

    it can be used for unscrewing any system with the pins (both two and three holes), te good thing is it tends to tighten itself due to the arms who swivel, the trick is to put pressure on the painters spanner (don't know the right word for it) and the bearing makes it a lot easyer to overcome turning forces

    Having worked in a bomb factory in my younger days, it seems to me that an already-fired bombshell wouldn`t have anything left to unscrew.
